The rig in question is not an electronic.

6.2 never used the DS4 IP

It has a TH 400 w/Gearvender over and under secondary trans.


I forgot to include the radiator, I did plan to bring it over.
No problem though! I have a hack saw. (Just kidding)


Sounds like a dodged a bullet on the accelerator peddle. Phew!

No. No hacksaw. Still need an accelerator peddle though, whichever it may be. No law requires you mount it to the firewall, though. Get creative!

You will be good to go.

If the truck had a 400 your set.

If the 6.2 had a 700R4 YOU WILL need a flex plate for the 6.2 as the 700 uses the small converter and the bolt pattern is different.

400 and 4l80 use the same flex plate

Diesels use their own plate and will not swap with any gassers.

you will need the vacuum valve to control the modulator on the 400 tranny

Vacuum pump on the 6.2 feeds a small reservoir and then one line to the valve and one to the modulator.

Adjust to get the shifts firm but not stupid late and hard...


The Chupi cat does not come with the valve...

Robyn,
Thanks for the pics, I am sorry to hear the cat is sold separately.


Dmax,

Thinking on it, I guess I could mount the radiator on the front bumper, kinda Mad Max style. No one in North Idaho would care or even notice.

I'll have to ponder the accelerator a bit more.

My little buddy is part of the family.

Sphynx cats are spendy..

This little girl had some hair (Supposed to be naked kitties) cost me $350
Usually kittens go for a grand or more

Hey Folks,
I was just out doing what I could to get this 6.2 to run and I think I need some pointers.


It has been sitting for a couple years, I drained the fuel as it's old, I'm having trouble getting fuel to flow again, what is the trick to priming a 1989 1500 truck?

I understand this can be difficult, I have 5 gallons in the tank, is that enough?



Thanks you
